epUpdate October 2021
In our October empowering people. Update, we are looking through a gender lens at our epNetwork members, their programs and actions that specifically support women and girls. For example, find out what NABU is planning with Girl Rising in Kenya, and read all about the inspiring story of MakaPads’ CEO in our latest blog post. Plus more great news and upcoming events.
Dear members, partners and friends of empowering people. Network,
There is evidence that gender equality has multiplying effects on families, communities, and businesses, and is a strong contributor to sustainable development. This month’s epUpdate features stories that share this goal: Among others, through a children’s book by NABU that aims to reduce gender stereotypes, the awarding of (B)energy’s founder Katrin Pütz as an example of women’s achievements, or the mentorship that Nnassuuna Mirembe, CEO of MakaPads, receives through our epMentoring program. Join us looking through a gender lens and take a deep dive into a number of examples where girls and women are empowered!
We'd be happy to hear your ideas on this and the other topics of this issue. Thank you for being with us!
